locker.bat

    Question

  • I am using htg locker.bat

    After locking the folder, the private folder should disappear but in my case the private folder is still visible. The only difference is that from its folder name PRIVATE it just change into HTG LOCKER.

  • Hello,

    For what it's worth, that scheme (locker.bat) is in no way secure.

    Anyone can read the password stored in the .bat file, and anyone can un-hide the folder if you get the locker.bat to hide it.

    However, general Windows questions should be asked in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    The 'Academic Initiatives - Software Resources' forum is for posts related to MSDNAA and Direct Student Downloads for availing Microsoft Software as related to Microsoft's Academic Initiatives.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.
